Holiday Giving

Many seeking the services of YWCA are, for one reason or another, unable to experience the joy of giving with loved ones. But, on one special day in December, YWCA is transformed into a fun holiday shop—complete with elves and cookies. Through our Holiday Shop, YWCA participants can shop for free; providing a means to give new gifts and holiday joy to their families.

Give Gifts

This joyous day couldn’t happen without community members, organizations, and businesses who donate gifts to the holiday shop year after year. When you are out doing your holiday shopping, think of those served by YWCA. Purchase some new gifts for a family escaping violence, or a youth caught up in the foster care system. To help spread joy through gift giving this holiday, please deliver your in-kind donations to YWCA, 3609 Main Street by Wednesday, December 13th. View the wishlist. Purchase a gift online.


Participants are also supported by the empowering services and resources provided at YWCA Clark County. You can help fund these services by making a monetary donation by December 31st. Make a secure online donation today or mail it in to PO Box 2206, Vancouver, WA, 98668.


Every program and department of YWCA utilizes the support of volunteers. Opportunities range from advocacy to office work and provide flexible time commitments. Volunteers receive training and support throughout their time with YWCA, so that they may have a rewarding and beneficial experience.
